Those of you who know my portly personage well are aware that I'm partial to a bit of cake.
I was spoilt for choice yesterday. fr Robert & fr. Haavar Simon were ordained to the diaconate, and fr Lawrence became Fr Lawrence. So they was plenty of cake to be had. The one above was made by Genevieve, one of Blackfriars graduate students.
Although it did make me wonder about the social niceties of eating the figures. I was tempted to cut the bishop's head off...but that's probably not the done thing. Trouble is the figures don't last for ever.
We kept our wedding cake hippos for a few years, but they went the way of all flesh (or marzipan at any rate)!
